Introducing Kilohearts Content Banks

We've heard there aren't enough presets out there to show off the power of the Kilohearts Ecosystem. So we decided to do something about that.

There have been so many positive things said about our plugins over the years, which is wonderful! But one comment we’ve heard a few times is that there just aren’t enough presets out there to really show off the power and range of the Kilohearts Ecosystem's capabilities… so we decided to do something about that.

Big time.

We’ve been working our rumpas off over the last few months to not only pull together a fantastic selection of completely new presets with some of the best preset designers in the game, but also to improve our preset management system as a whole.

And today we are delighted to announce the launch of Kilohearts Content Banks along with an updated preset management system for all our plugins.

Over 300 New Expertly Designed Presets

As of right now, there are six new Content Banks available in our new Content Bank Store, each containing up to fifty presets across a range of styles. And we have many more planned.

We are ridiculously excited to debut two very different ‘Artist Banks’ in the forms of Book of the Dead from Kill the Noise and Polychrome from Andrew Huang. Just wait until you hear what these guys have come up with… these patches are mind-blowing!

In addition, we have New London, Tremor, Impossible, and Headline banks packed with fresh sounds for Drum and Bass, Ambient, IDM, EDM, and all kinds of other styles and genres.

All Content Banks are available to buy in our store but, get this, if you are a Kilohearts Subscriber you can add them to your collection at no extra charge. That’s right, you just got over 300 new presets for nothing. Don’t say we’re not good to you.

Content Banks - More than Meets the Eye

A Content Bank is a single file that can contain presets for any of our plugins as well as samples, wavetables, and LFO shapes. Adding them easy as pie. For our own Content Banks you can simply run the Kilohearts Installer to download and install everything to your computer. For third-party Content Banks you just need to drag and drop the file into any of our hosts (Snap Heap, Multipass, or Phase Plant) and they’ll be instantly added to your collection.

When you update your Kilohearts software to v1.8.6 you will discover the new and improved browser system with handy new features like hashtag browsing and separate Content Bank folders. This will make it easier to find the perfect preset for your needs.

Check out our range of Content Banks now.
